What’s your favorite disaster movie? Could this really be the end of the world as we know it? Author Dale Sherman joins me to chat about everything from Zombies, and Aliens to Atomic Bombs and Armageddon!
Dale Sherman’s first apocalyptic movie memory was explaining the plot to This Is Not a Test to his family when he was six. Since then he has been a fan of the film genre, while writing books on such topics as women in music, urban legends, and Alice Cooper, and several books on the rock band KISS, including KISS FAQ (Backbeat Books).
He lives above-ground and unafraid of zombies with his healthy wife, angelic daughter, and various nonlethal pets. Armageddon Films FAQ: All That’s Left to Know About Zombies, Contagions, Aliens, and the End of the World as We Know It (Applause Books, Oct. 2013, $24.99) by Dale Sherman looks into the various methods we have destroyed ourselves with over the years: zombies, mad computers, uptight aliens, plunging objects from space, crazed animals, Satan, God, contagions, the ever-popular atomic bomb, and sometimes even a combination of these in the same movie.
